Summer: time for the Great British Beer Festival

Vegan and non-alcoholic beer joins traditional and classic brews during the Great British Beer Festival. Showcasing its biggest ever range at this summer’s festival, the event runs until the 11th August at Olympia London.

The Great British Beer Festival is one of the biggest, most exciting and well-known events in the beer and cider world. Organised by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) and run almost entirely by volunteers, it brings hundreds of real ales, international beers and real ciders and perries under the iconic Olympia London’s roof. 

Joining well-known favourites such as Fuller’s, St. Austell, XT, Harvey’s, Titanic and headline sponsors Greene King there will be some new faces on the brewery bars. In addition to the impressive brewery bar line up, CAMRA bars across the festival will be showcasing an additional 140 beers to give visitors even more options. Many of these new additions will be rotating and limited in quantity to expand the range available from the breweries. 

There will even be more choice for those who shy away from the traditional brews, with 40 different vegan-friendly beer options and 15 gluten-free beers on tap. For the first time in the festival’s 41 year history, there will also be a non-alcoholic beer range, provided by Braxzz Brewery; and an array of street food and live music will prove the perfect accompaniments for the hot summer days. 

Catherine Tonry, Great British Beer Festival organiser, says: “I am delighted that so many fantastic breweries will be joining this year’s festival. With more brewery bars than ever before and an expanded range for those seeking alternative options, I’m confident that there is a beer for everyone at this year’s festival.”
